“Good service but”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Our service at the counter was very good but food was mediocre. Pea soup had nice consistency but little bit of ham wasn't very good. Chicken fried steak with eggs was just ok. Eggs not really scrambled & chicken fried steak was so so. Toast was good! We may not go back, though. There have to be better spots in Yuma than this.

“Breakfast like it should be.”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We love going to Penny's Diner, and do so often. The portions are VERY generous and their biscuits and gravy are wonderful. I can never finish all my food, but i certainly enjoy trying. The wait staff is friendly and go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and happy. They have a very nice selection of items and even offer some Senior fare. Definitely a great bargain!

“A fun Diner”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

A great diner with good food. This breakfast came with our hotel and we felt that we had gotten a really good bonus. It"s fun to watch the cook and the staff from the counter. The food was good, fresh and tasty. Busy for breakfast.

“Old School Diner!”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Stopped here to meet a local friend for dinner. had the meatloaf dinner, a BLT, the roast beef sand and two burgers; there were five of us. Place was clean food was really good and failry priced. Reminded me of the Studio Diner in San Diego. Penny's is a great 50's style diner with friendly service, good food and a great price! We all enjoyed our meals with no complaints. You can order anything off the menu at any time. The way Old School Diner's operated! Sometimes breakfast tastes really good for dinner.
